So I discovered today that the Emperor's theme in Star Wars is the exact same theme as the super happy ending celebration theme in Episode I which is all kinds of awesome. The big celebration at the end of Episode I is rightly deserved for the heroes, but it is also the initial first step allowing the Emperor to stage a full on coup later and taking over the entire universe basically. This is his moment. This is his theme. Behold the Genius of John Williams.
This got me thinking of a few other of my favorite music easter eggs.
